Seven Day Combined course includes the CBT, Module One and
Module Two Motorcycle Tests*. If you are nervous about learning, of
small stature or are not physically fit, then you may require a longer

learn, or would prefer to learn at a slower pace.

This course is suitable for individuals who have recently obtained
their CBT. Riders must be able to demonstrate to the instructor the
basics of riding a geared 125cc motorcycle on day one. If you had
some difficulty obtaining the CBT, only did your CBT on an automatic

Direct Access course, as this will refresh your CBT skills. The Six
Day Combined course includes the Module One and Module Two
Motorcycle Tests*.


five day combined direct Access**
Riders must already hold their CBT and currently ride a motorcycle on
the road or take part in off-road motorcycling. On day one, you must
be able to demonstrate to the instructor that you are competent riding
a geared 125cc motorcycle on the road, so that you can be upgraded
to the BMW F 650 GS or G 650 Xcountry on the same day. The Five

                                               Thousands of customers have enjoyed our popular BMW Off Road
                                               Skills courses. Our training takes place in the spectacular Walters
                                               Arena in Wales, offering 4,000 acres of terrain and trails to suit all riding
                                               abilities. You will be taught or guided by an experienced team
                                               of instructors, headed by seven-time Dakar Rally competitor Simon
                                               Pavey – as seen here on his competition bike.

                                               In response to our customers comments, we have worked hard
                                               to develop the 2010 Off Road Skills programme to create a more
                                               streamlined structure across the skills range. Level One is definitely
                                               the place for everyone to start, with all the fun and challenges of riding
                                               off-road presented in a structured course. There is now a smoother
                                               transition to Level Two GS and Level Two Enduro, with the emphasis
                                               being on riding time and practicing new skill sets, finishing with a final
                                               challenge of your new-found skills in our trials section! Both Level Two
                                               courses require similar technical ability, the difference is simply one of
                                               choice – your choice – Adventure style GS or Enduro!

                                               The key skills required to complete the trials section, are also the entry
                                               point for Level Three GS and Level Three Enduro – you will certainly
                                               enjoy the challenges of our new style Level Three courses. Whether
                                               riding GS or Enduro, each level will balance new skills and revision, with
                                               more trail time as your skills and fitness improve through the levels.

                                               Our popular Day in the Dirt is back, a brilliant way to get time on the
                                               bike, honing your skills with the guidance of our ORS Instructors to
                                               ensure you gain the maximum enjoyment from your riding. We highly
                                               recommend this day to help your transition to the next level.

                                               The two-day Brecon Beacons Adventure also returns in 2010, with
                                               new trails for previous Off Road Skills customers, whilst we have more

                                               successful introduction to the programme in 2009.

                                               What’s more – all of our 2010 course costs have been ‘frozen’ at

level two gS*
Our new Level Two GS course has been streamlined to provide a
better follow-on than our previous Level Two course – a response
to customer comments that the step-up was too extreme, requiring
too much emphasis on revision. We aim to continue developing your
off-road riding skills where you left off with Level One, so make sure

control! Whilst the emphasis is not too technical or demanding, this
course will give you new skills to tackle the challenges ahead, whilst

Day Two you will know if you are ready for Level Three.

improve their skills on a big adventure bike, with a view to travelling

    Riders who have confidently completed Level One and want to
    improve their biking skills even further.
    Riders who want to tackle trails a little further off the beaten track.
    Riders who want to build their confidence on an
    adventure style bike.

                  BMW Motorrad UK is celebrating 30 years of the iconic GS in 2010
                  by entering a British team to compete in the International BMW Motorrad
                  GS Trophy. The Trophy provides the ultimate test of man and machine,




gS troPhy 2010.
                  designed to give amateur off-road riders the opportunity to take on
                  BMW Teams from countries around the world in a major and
                  prestigious enduro competition.
                  The Trophy was first introduced in 2008, giving the worldwide community
                  of GS riders the opportunity to experience a unique off-road adventure:
                  a sporting competition defined by a powerful sense of team spirit.
                  Teams from around the world including Italy, Germany, Spain, Japan
                  and the USA competed in the inaugural event staged in Tunisia and all
                  these countries – and more – will be represented in the 2010 GS Trophy.
                  The 2010 British ‘GS Challenge’ UK qualifying round will be organized
                  by BMW Off Road Skills. Chief instructor and seven-times Dakar competitor
                  Simon Pavey, and his team of expert instructors, will host the qualifying
                  stage in beautiful Wales over the weekend of 31 July and 01 August
                  2010. Participants will face a range of endurance and skill tests and will
                  be pushed to their limits in a challenging yet fun environment. The event
                  will also cater for those GS fans just wanting to enter for a fun ride, with
                  activities for riders of all skill levels both on and off road.
                  The three top qualifiers from the GS Challenge will be invited to
                  represent the UK in this year’s final round of the International GS
                  Trophy planned to be held in South Africa in October or November
                  2010 (exact location and date tbc). The 10-day Trophy final will be
                  a challenging test of physical rigor, technical ability, and riding skills –
                  combined with great camaraderie between participants from around
                  the world, and a rewarding sense of achievement.

Motorrad days and
the ultimate test ride
Approx dates: 30 June – 09 July 2010
For 2010 we have combined the popular BMW Motorrad Days event
with an excursion to Austria to stay at a BMW biker hotel in the Austrian
Alps. Each year we travel to Garmisch Partenkirchen in southern
Germany for the BMW Motorrad Days biker rally – a chance for up to
40,000 BMW owners to converge, meet up, and see some spectacular
demonstration rides. There will also be a chance to take part in mass
ride-outs and enjoy the hospitality of the huge beer tent in the evenings.

This 13 day tour will start at Folkestone with an early morning Eurotunnel
crossing to Nancy. From here, we will ride straight to Garmisch, crossing
the stunning Vosges mountains and the southern Black Forest. Days
three, four and five will be free to enjoy all BMW Motorrad Days has to
offer, such as ride-outs, demonstrations, excellent food tents and much
more. On the afternoon of day five we leave Garmisch and travel into
Austria to Landeck. Here, you will get the opportunity to spend three
days test riding a wide range of current BMW models on some of the
best biking roads in Europe.

The final leg of the journey will be from Landeck to Nancy, before riding
back from Nancy to Calais on days nine and ten.

 Monza, World Superbikes
 and the italian lakes
 Approx dates: 05 – 12 June 2010
 This tour was introduced in 2009 to celebrate and support BMW’s
 participation in the World Superbike Championship. Having proved such
 a hit, we will be repeating the Tour in 2010. After a successful debut
 season, with Troy Corser and Ruben Xaus heading up the BMW Motorrad
 Motorsport team’s assault on the championship, the objective for 2010
 will be to consolidate BMW’s position as a regular front runner in this
 competitive race series. However, there will be more than just racing on
 this trip. The tour will also appeal to those looking for a medium length
 ride through Europe, discovering great biking roads, Italy’s stunning lakes,
 wonderful locations for the evenings and friendly company.

 The eight day tour will start with a crossing from Dover to Calais. From
 there we will head through the towns and regions of Troyes, Interlaken,
 Como, Champagne and the Black Forest. Highlights of the tour will without
 a doubt be Race Day on day five, where tour participants will see the
 mighty S 1000 RR race bike in action at arguably the world’s most historic
 and picturesque race circuit – Monza*. Equally, the spectacular riding to
 and from the beautiful Italian lakes will make this a BMW Tour
 to remember.
